I'm sorry Max! It seems like there is a contest going on to make me mad and everyone is winning...

I was really just trying to look out for you. I understand though how things, especially lately, can be mis-construed.

I took your "advice" and listened to the whole second set and found some very nice stuff including a Cosmic Joy Ride in between Other One Jams. I still don't know why it is so mis-labeled on Dead.net and LMA but it doesn't matter since I have it right now and will listen to it again and again.

I just streamed that segment at the Tapers Section. Its apparent that just about every note from the tour is a must to listen to.

Anyway, sorry again. This place is a cesspool...

"This place is a cesspool."


You Sir are unfortunately quite correct. But given that, isn't it amazing the "we" keep coming back. Is it to endure all manner of abuse from people we don't know and in all likelihood will never meet? I think not.

What keeps us coming back is Grateful Dead. There is discussion of the music, though not nearly enough to suit some. There are recommendations for shows that you may, or may not have ever heard.

But you know, there is something else as well. Whether you want to admit it, or not there is a camaraderie here. Sure it gets, shall we say, "less than amicable" at times; but it is there nonetheless. For example, would any of us here refuse to listen to a recommended show because it was "pushed" by a forumite we might not care for? Would we not read an interesting discussion simply because it was originated by one of our "forum enemies"? I don;t really believe anyone here is quite that petty. And, like family we can bitch and bicker and still respond to one another with civility when we perceive the situation to warrant it.

Bill, you're a wise man. I feel a real sense of community when I log in here. Like any community there are going to be people you like, people you dislike, people you don't much care about one way or another - and your opinions are going to change day to day. At least here we know that many (if not most) of us found our way here for a reason, and that we can all find common ground in something.

Like moths to a flame!

The funny part is, that if all of us folks ever did really meet in person, we probably would like one another...

Nah, I'm sure I'd probably still think Dire was an asshole and I'd get tired of rebuking Tito's advances. Just because I voted No on 8 doesn't mean I want him.

Thanks to SDH for making me suffer thru a 77 LLR at the moment. Street cats....
